Introducing...A Fine Distraction

www.AFineDistraction.etsy.com

I would like to share with everyone the beautiful jewellery sold by A Fine Distraction. Her store was one of the first that I ever came across when I started out on Etsy, and she remains my favourite jewellery shop to this day.

A Fine Distraction started out when she decided to make some wine stem charms for her mum. She started looking for materials to make them and became hooked on beads. This soon turned into a love of jewellery making. Earlier this year, she opened A Fine Distraction on Etsy.

Her work is inspired by nature and this is shown by the soft coloured beads and antique brass in all her pieces. I find her jewellery beautifully subtle, just the type of jewellery I like. The first piece shown here is a set of White Wedding Lucite Flower earrings.

A lot of her shop is earrings, but there are also a few necklaces and bracelets. Shown here is a Cranberry Pearl Passion Flower necklace. A large stunning flower with subtle muted red, cranberry and plum coloured pearls and antique brass chain.
The backgrounds used in her photographs only make her jewellery look even better.

Shown here is a Golden Tortoise bracelet made with Czech glass and antique brass. Its faceted glass beads gleam in the sun and has a very autumnal feel to it.

This last set of earrings are pink and purple fairy baubles. They are blooming pink lucite flowers in enamelled purple flower bead caps. Simply adorable.

Check out her shop today!
